The Chubby Stick from Clinique has eclipsed all other balms launched in the last couple of years, becoming a cult product and a huge success story. I love the formula and have a sneaky stick in every drawer (from desk to bedside cabinet) so I’m never without some essential moisture. The chunky pens are perfect for applying on the go, while adding a touch of colour to lips, and contain some amazing ingredients including shea butter, mango seed butter and jojoba seed oil. I’ve written about them before and have covered new shade additions since they were launched in 2011, but from mid-November they bring an intense version to counters across the UK… So now you can have the moisture, but with a more intense hit of colour.
The Chubby Stick Intense will be available in eight different shades, covering the brown, pink and red spectrum from subtle to strong. The colours are all still really wearable and provide an intensely moisturising and comfortable result, but with a glossy slick of colour on lips that competes with some of my favourite lipsticks. I for one can find traditional lipsticks very drying, so this brings the best of both worlds together and even creates a little stain on the skin for a long-lasting result. The sheen makes lips look healthy and full, while the shea butter brings a comfortable form of relief when your pout is a little dry in these colder months. These will no doubt reaffirm the Chubby Stick‘s position as a must-have for any woman and sit in desk drawers up and down the country.
The Chubby Stickclin intense available mid-November priced £16.00. Original version available now.
